The Australian Army has a major role in enacting the United Nation’s Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. This is important internally within our defence force as well as outwardly in its engagements across the Indo-Pacific.
Major Lyndsay Freeman is the Senior Instructor for the ADF’s Gender, Peace and Security Training. Speaking on the value that women and meaningful diversity bring to our Army, Lyndsay said: “It’s not just a ‘nice to have’, it’s past that point of discussing it as a “feminist agenda” – it is mission essential. We aren’t going to have Australian national resilience and create security in the Pacific if we don’t apply a gender perspective.”
Join 15 Minutes in Canberra to hear about Lyndsay’s experiences in the Australian Army, how she discovered the power of authentic leadership, embraces the rollercoaster of motherhood, and supports WPS initiatives.
